How to decorate a vanity (Quick tips!)
- Use good lighting–either a table lamp or proximity to a window
- Try an oversized mounted mirror or leaner mirror
- Organize your beauty products on a cute tray or bowl
- Personalize your space with your unique style
Does every morning begin the same way? In a frantic hustle to get breakfast made, get dressed and get everyone out the door – don’t forget to take time for yourself! Make mornings smoother, simpler and more stylish with these five tips for a flawless makeup table!
1. Get Gorgeous in Good Lighting
Good lighting is key for applying your makeup. Natural light is best, so arrange your makeup table area near a large window if possible. Otherwise opt for a table lamp to cast a soft glow on your blank canvas to avoid harsh makeup lines or uneven tones.
Pro tip: Buy the right light bulb! Bright white bulbs with 75-100 watts will give you bright illumination perfect for your beauty routine!
2. Try an Oversized Mirror
Mirror, mirror on the wall, why are you so bland, so useless, so small? If your primp area feels cramped and crowded, try an oversized mirror! Mounted or leaner mirrors give you the space you need while bringing in even more light to make applying makeup and styling hair a breeze!
3. Emphasize Storage & Organization
Makeup gets messy! Keep your beauty products neat and organized in practical storage solutions like a table-top tray, bowl or canister. And don’t waste time dealing with tangled jewelry! Try a free standing jewelry armoire to elegantly display all your favorite sparkly accessories!
4. Make it Personalized
Remember, this is YOUR space. This is the time for you – before the scrambled eggs, tying tiny shoelaces, sitting in a traffic jam part of your day begins – so make it all about you! Find a stylish frame to display a favorite memory, quotation or artwork, or include a monogram wall hanging for that final personalized touch.
5. Celebrate Your Style
Let’s talk BEAUTY room. It’s likely you can’t dedicate an entire room to your routine, (we can dream, can’t we?) but live by the rules of feng shui and make this space a pretty, practical, and multi-functional masterpiece! Set out some fresh or faux flowers in a chic vase, add your favorite fragrances and let every detail celebrate you!
